Things to Do This Weekend

  1. Clarify the functional and analytical differences between chapters 5, 6 and 7. Maybe chapters 6 and 7 will have to be merged.
  2. Continue on chapter 7.
  3. Email abstract of book chapter to editors in Australia.
  4. Come up with a catchy name for my conference paper/presentation and email to organiser.
  5. Watch at least three episodes of The Wire.
  6. Avoid any College bops, specifically those two you've been invited to and therefore feel twitchy about. There are always more and you're not getting much enjoyment from them anyway.
  7. Avoid large crowds of all sorts as you know you will end up feeling exhausted from excessive and theatrical story-telling.
  8. Avoid email - there are no crises taking place or at least none that requires your input.
  9. Do the washing-up that you've pretended was not real this whole week. This activity is applicable to you.
  10. Go for a long walk in the most dramatic landscape you can find in Oxfordshire.

Exactly, just do it! But enjoy it also...

Eeek! Can you not squeeze in a soothing hot chocolate, or vanilla milkshake?

Bless your list writing. I'm starting to get back to it myself, and am finding it hard to confront that much reality!

Best of luck xx

I say just do lots of number 5 and forget about the rest! Hugs xx
